Episode 9 – Planning, planning, planning

(2 min reading)

Hi! Welcome or welcome back 🙂

One question I often get asked is: “What is it really that you spend your time on?”

AppForFans is naturally my priority no 1, beside that I have a part-time job in a furniture shop, badminton coaching and studying Chinese as well.
Alongside I love to get some exercise done – I guess that’s something deep down in me as a former athlete. I feel that my body is my machine, I keep the machine going by getting some exercise done in the mornings, to get ready for the jobs to be done the rest of the day.
It is a lot of activities, therefore it requires a lot of structure and planning of the daily schedule. My good old dad always told me: “planning, planning, planning”.
Every Sunday, I try to plan which jobs and activities to be done in the following week. In this way, I hopefully can avoid too many unforeseen challenges.

At the moment, my biggest tasks for AppForFans are dialog with athletes, design of the app, business development, plan for our marketing and the general overview of progress, problems and challenges that our developers might have.

Below I have tried to sketch how a typical week could look like

Monday:

  • Training 07.15 – 08.15
  • AppForFans 09.00 –

Tuesday:

  • Training 07.15 – 08.15
  • AppForFans 09.00 – 17.00
  • Chinese homework 17.00 – 18.00
  • Badminton coaching 19.00 – 21.00

Wednesday:

  • AppForFans 08.30 – 09.45
  • Chinese lesson 10.00 – 11.00
  • AppForFans 11.15 –

Thursday:

  • Training: 07.15 – 08.15
  • AppForFans 09.00 – 14.00
  • Part-time job 15.00 – 19.00

Friday:

  • Training 07.15 – 08.15
  • AppForFans 10.00 – 14.00
    • Weekly call with our developers.
  • Part-time job 15.00 – 20.00

I work on weekends biweekly for my part-time job. My other weekends I try to give myself some time off, but it is not as easy as it sounds.
I don’t think it can be avoided, that you always walk around and considering new ideas or thinking through the single functions purpose, design etc. for the thousands of time.

It is a bit different from a 8-16 job, but it is mega exciting, mega fun and mega educational!

See you again soon, and thank you for your time 🙂

Regards,
Flemming
